It had been too long since my last Ludum Dare attempt. So I decided to go all in on my re-entry into 48 hour game development.

And then I created this monstrosity.

Some wise words from coach champ

“It’s the night of the cup final. As the manager of the home side, it is your duty to lead your team to victory. But with kick-off approaching… you only have 10 seconds to prepare a speech!”

Put random phrases together in the hope that your wise choice of words will lead your team to victory!



So I’ve finished my main character…

The idea I’m going for kind of forces my game into a comedy-oriented one. Maybe people laugh at bad art? But It’s nice to get something finished, after hopping between ideas for a while.

Now to get neck deep in a text editor.

I’m In!

This will be my 6th time in the compo, and being in the UK, this LD has come at the perfect time, what with the bank holiday Monday right after the weekend.

Stuff that I will probably use:

Language: Haxe (love it!)

Libraries: OpenFL for 2D/general, h3d for any 3d, Ash-Haxe for Entity/System management

IDE/Text Editor: Sublime Text 2, Vim, or FlashDevelop (depends on current OS/preference)

Graphics: Aseprite

Audio: SunVox for music, BFXR for sfx

Good luck to everyone! Cannot contain my excitement 😀

Also, I’m going to try and use my Twitter a lot more during the compo – @Erifdex

EDIT: One more thing, I have a Github repo containing some base code (might change a little during the compo, might change a lot) https://github.com/Erifdex/LD27

Guess who’s in…

Me! I’m in!

This will be my 4th LD, and although I’m proud of my previous games, I feel I can do much better. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this weekend, as is everyone else I presume.


  •  Coding: AS3 with either FlashPunk or the recently unveiled (but awesome) Pixelizer. I may possibly decide on using HTML5/Canvas instead – it all really depends on the idea I come up with.
  • Art: Most likely Gimp.
  • Sounds: SFXR/BFXR

Good luck everyone!

It’s not much, but I’m pretty happy with the name:

More Progress…

…but still not really a game! That being said, I have got some user interaction going on. I am really trying to hit the perfect spot when it comes to the emotion and the mood of the game. So, here’s the story so far:

You play as a neglected, depressed individual, trying to find human contact. While walking along the rainy streets, he recites a poem, describing his situation. However, to find happiness, he must first unravel the mysteries of the world that he lives in.

There’s almost definitely going to be an unexpected ending, so watch this space!


Whoa, that's one challenging game!

Hell of a rainy day

Well, I’ve made lots of progress…

So my game’s really starting to take shape, although at the moment it’s not really… a game. It’s ALL cutscenes currently, and I still haven’t thought of a way to add some user interaction. Suggestions? 😀 Anyway, here’s some screenies:

I’m a little behind because of time zones, and because I just lost about 30 minutes of spriting thanks to gimp crashing. Oh well, I’ll get there in the end :)

I’m In!

Yep, that’s right, LD22 here I come! This is my third time in the competition (third time lucky, right?), but my tools haven’t changed much:


  • AS3
  • FlashDevelop
  • FlashPunk
  • Possibly Sos’s little platformer library (link)


  • GIMP/Paint.NET
  • Nanostudio/fl Studio (if I have time)
  • SFXR
Good luck everyone!

Woke up at 8:00, saw theme, thought of vague idea, started work on vague idea…

Here’s what I’ve got so far:

"escape" game screenshot

It’s a top down shooter style game, where you play a character that is stuck in a strange complex. And he needs to get out. Eventually, I hope that there will be guards patrolling the area.

Here we go again!

Hi, I’m Xedfire (or Erifdex, spot the connection..) This will be my second ludum dare compo, and I’m really feeling pumped for it this time!

I’ll be using FlashPunk.

Well, so far my development progress has been extremely strange… This is my first ludum dare, so I started at 7:00 this morning with my most used game engine, Unity 3D. Right now I have got an near-finished game in FlashDevelop with FlashPunk. I know, weird. To tell the truth, everything was going wrong for me with Unity, especially animations. I am very pleased about swapping software.

My game is all about the life of a mouse pointer. The story is, one day you (the pointer) wake up to find out that your mother has been kidnapped! You tell your grandfather that you are setting off in search of her, but before you leave, he gives you a mysterious object… A crosshair! He says that you can use it to blow up evil monsters and stuff. That’s basically it for the random story (so far? dun dun duuun), but the gameplay is slightly more straightforward. It is basically a cross between bomberman and, urm, I don’t really know to be honest! But you control the crosshair with your mouse, and drop bombs by clicking. You go through many different levels, each with a single enemy inside. Once you have defeated that enemy, you go on to another level, and do it again. BUT, your health doesn’t regenerate. So the winner is whoever can last the longest. You can receive damage by either hitting the enemy, or hitting flames from a bomb.

More news soon!
